When Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus this past September, there were almost no surprises left. The phones’ “boring” new design had leaked months ahead of the event, as it always does, and nearly all of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus’s new features had already been revealed by insiders. We knew about the new cameras, we new about the new components, and of course we knew that the 3.5mm headphone jack would no longer be included on the new iPhones. The biggest surprise ended up being a second new color option for Apple’s 2016 iPhones.
The matte black color that replaced Space Gray had already leaked, and there were murmurs of a possible new deep blue color coming to the iPhone 7. Instead, Apple revealed a stunning new Jet Black color with a glossy, mirror-like finish.
